Beyond the Button: Why Pendant Alarms Are a Thing of the Past

For decades, pendant alarms have been the primary tool for ensuring the safety of our loved ones living at home. A simple press of a button sends help on the way, offering a sense of security. But as technology advances, the limitations of pendant alarms become increasingly apparent.

Let's face it, pendant alarms have some significant drawbacks:

  • Limited Coverage: They only work when worn & pressed, leaving loved ones vulnerable during falls in the shower, at night, or if they simply forget to wear it.
  • False Alarms: Accidental button presses can trigger unnecessary emergency responses, causing frustration for everyone involved.
  • Reduced Independence: The constant need to wear a pendant can feel restrictive, discouraging loved ones from participating in activities for fear of forgetting the device.
  • Limited Functionality: Basic pendant alarms offer only emergency calling, lacking the ability to provide valuable insights into a loved one's daily routine or potential health risks.
  • Tech Challenges: Some loved ones might struggle with the dexterity or technology needed to use a pendant effectively, especially in an emergency situation.

The Future of Elderly Safety: Radar & AI Take Center Stage

Thankfully, innovative solutions are emerging to address these shortcomings. SmartGuardian, for example, leverages the power of radar & artificial intelligence (AI) to provide a more comprehensive & proactive approach to elderly safety:

  • Discreet Radar Sensors: Imagine sensors placed strategically around the home, like guardian angels, using advanced radar technology to detect falls without the need for a wearable device. They can even distinguish between falls & everyday activities.
  • AI-Powered Fall Detection: Sophisticated algorithms analyse the radar data, differentiating between a fall & other movements. If a fall is detected, an emergency alert is automatically sent, ensuring help arrives even if a loved one is unable to call for assistance.
  • 24/7 Monitoring: Unlike pendant alarms, SmartGuardian provides continuous monitoring, offering peace of mind knowing your loved one is protected around the clock.
  • Activity Monitoring: By analysing daily activity patterns, the system can identify potential health risks or changes in routine, allowing for early intervention & preventative measures.
